Builder Spotlight - Cline Design Associates

Cline Design Associates is an integrated architecture, planning, landscape architecture and interiors firm in North Carolina with more than 20 years of successful design. Headquartered in Raleigh, Cline Design looks at each project with one goal in mind: to craft places that improve the quality of life.

“We envision each project to enhance the environment and create a unique sense of place that is memorable and genuine. Not only in the buildings themselves but the spaces between them and the feeling you get when you walk in the front door,” said Gary Cline, managing principal for Cline Design Associates.

Cline is currently envisioning a luxury multifamily development in Fayetteville, N.C.: The Bellagio Apartments. An Italian-themed complex, the Bellagio Apartments will have the look of the Italian city with the interior feel of the Las Vegas hotel amenities.

With the help of general contractor Samet Corporation, Cline Design is crafting their client’s vision of creating a uniquely themed development that is sure to echo the award-winning success of other Cline Design projects. What is the secret to that success? You don’t have to buy the most expensive products to create a quality architecture or quality space.

Cline’s material of choice for the Bellagio Apartments—engineered wood—is beautiful, durable, and affordable. The apartments will utilize a wide variety of engineered wood products including LP® OSB Sheathing;  LP® TechShield® panels; LP® TopNotch® 250 Sub-Flooring; LP® SmartSide® lap, reversible trim, soffit, stucco panels and Carrara™ stucco; LSL headers; and LP® FlameBlock® Fire-Rated OSB Sheathing.

Cline Design Associates was founded in 1989 with a focus on sustainability and the desire to create practical, affordable, aesthetically engaging designs. Cline has earned a variety of awards for the quality of its integrated service, including the 2009 Durham Appearance Commission Golden Leaf Award for the best residential project and the 2008 Project of the Year Award in the low rise category of the Multifamily Executive and Developer awards, just to name a few.
